Lantronix Attempts Web Based Control of Almost Any Device

According to this months issue of Processor Magazine, Lantronix is working on a service that will allow remote administration of just about any device via a web browser. The service is located at which is not currently showing any information other than a signup form to be notified when the service launches.

No word yet on how exactly it’s going to be accomplished, but I suspect some kind of device physically attached to your appliance / server / switch / toaster over that will phone back to a centralized management server and allow changes to be made from there.

Personally, I’m intrigued because of my favorable experiences with the Lantronix Spider, but at the same time, I’m hoping it’s not a purely SaaS based central management option. Perhaps for smaller deployments it would be favorable, but in larger deployments I prefer to have my own servers be the management head.

Does anyone have a particular way they prefer to manage remote devices, particular serial connections, without punching holes in the firewall?
